President & Managing Director at GLOSSYBOX USA





BCM: If you could describe motherhood in one word, what would it be?

BF: Boomerang.

BCM: What’s one moment in your motherhood journey that has made you proud?

BF: I felt so proud and touched when my son Luke told his teacher that he would want to become me when he grows up.

BCM: What is one piece of advice you want to pass along to your children? 

BF:  Throw kindness around like confetti!

BCM: Congratulations on the success of GLOSSYBOX! What is the inspiration behind the products that go in the box each month?

BF: Thank you very much. We really put a lot of effort in composing the perfect mix of beauty discoveries: a combination of iconic products and well-known brands.


BCM: What is one item of makeup or skincare item that moms should always have on hand?

BF: I absolutely love lip and cheek tints as well as Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream – both are multi-purpose products that literally saved my life many times and I couldn’t live without them.

BCM: What is one piece of advice you would pass along to other moms?

BF:  What can go wrong will go wrong. Don’t be too protective of your kids – trust is key!

BCM: How do you tackle work/life balance?

BF:  I don’t believe that work and life are two separate spheres in women’s lives. Work is a major part of my life, and as long as I love what I am doing, everything is in balance.

BCM: What is your favorite thing to do to relax and unwind?

BF: I have to admit: I absolutely love to dance. So when I have to unwind and relax, I turn the music on and dance it off!

BCM: What was the last book you read?

BF: “We need to talk about Kevin”, a novel by Lionel Shriver. It is both fascinating and captivating.                                   

BCM: If you could hand off one chore to someone else each day, what would it be?

BF:  As much as I love preparing dinner for my family, I can’t stand cleaning up the mess in the kitchen afterwards. If I could, I would never clean the kitchen again.

BCM: What is the best white lie that you’ve told your child?

BF: I used to tell my children that my Avène Thermal Water Spray heels everything from a cut to heartache. When they were younger, they truly believed in the superpowers of this marvelous spray (they probably still do)!

Dancing (preferably with my kids) to loud music


My kids are no longer shopping at kids stores, so we mainly shop at Nike, adidas, SuperDry or Zara.


Snapchat! I love to play around with filters and exchange funny images with my kids

What is on your DVR? 

I rarely ever watch TV, so I do not have anything on my DVR!
